It`s a startling admission but probably one not too far from the truth!

Nemanja Vidic, on the eve of our fixture with Stoke City, at Old Trafford, has spoken frankly about the manner in which our season has gone.

We may be top of the league but the performances, as demonstrated at the Hawthorns last time out, haven`t always been top notch, prompting our skipper to remark,

“If someone had predicted we would lose this many points I`d have said we would not win the league, that`s for sure.”

“Our away record is not something we`re proud of yet here we are top and still unbeaten. But we want to improve and we must play better.”

“If we had won just half of the away games we have drawn we would have been out of reach by now.”

“So it is very inconsistent from us and it`s hard to explain why. Definitely in some games we did not perform well, but got the result. Then again sometimes we did play well and didn`t get the result.”

“We still believe we can still win the league and we have certainly shown this season we can play solid because we haven`t lost.”

“This season is very strange indeed – if you`d told me five weeks ago Chelsea wouldn`t win for five or six games I wouldn`t have believed you.”

“Everyone thought Chelsea were the strongest team and that they would win the title, but after that they didn`t win.”

“And that shows how strong and competitive the Premier League is.”


Competitive probably, but as for strong, there`s plenty out there that would say the so-called big four are not as strong as they have been in recent seasons!
